it's better for dealing with the sickness the the radiation treatments leave you with not for the actual cancer though that would be bonkers.

Modern medicine is based on research. It isn't a fixed thing. Medicine will advance with new discoveries. If someone discovered some significant scientific proof that marijuana would help in one way or another then it would be modern medicine.

there is also no moderated dosage of marijuana. Since marijuana is not regulated, it's kind of a guess-and-see-what-happends kind of deal.

It would be a lot better if there was more research to see exactly what it does.
User avatar #37 to #34 - chaseford (08/05/2012) [-]
Exactly. I'm not against it, but there's not enough information behind it for me to support it.

And the negative impacting consequences slightly out-weigh the positive consequences in this case.

I completely agree with the use of cannabinoids as analgesics, but I find the portrayal of pharmaceutical companies offensive and ignorant. So it's a thumb down from me.

Haha! Most drugs mask the symptoms and don't do anything to cure the actual disease.But Marijuana would be just as useless

Marijuana actually has almost 5 times the amount of tar in it than cigarettes. Plus, marijuana has some chemicals in it that are very addictive. Addiction could be considered a short-term consequence, since it can happen the very first time you smoke.
User avatar #74 to #36 - gangjaman (08/06/2012) [-]
you and a good amount of people in this thread are ******* retarded.
1: its a pain killer
2: greatly reduces the amount of nausea after chemo
3: it does not in any ******* way have more tar in it than ciggarettes
4: it helps reduce muscle spasms with people with MSD
5: no one has died from it, making it much better option than pharm. drugs seeing as people die everyday from those
6: there is plenty of professional research that has been done on it to prove such things that has not been advertised in media, which is why you probably havnt heard of it.
7: the addiction to pot is biggest joke known to mankind. you can get addicted to anything that changes your state of mind, but with pot its pretty easy to get off of it if youve got something to do with yourself in the mean time

so go **** yourself with your lack of information, rape me red thumbs because i'm voicing whats true
User avatar #75 to #74 - chaseford (08/06/2012) [-]
its funny because theres been close to zero research on the effects of marijuana at all...but nice try. and it may relieve those symptoms, but it doesnt defeat the fact that it still has its own consequences. No one has ever died from marijuana because doctors never say they do. People die from lung cancer and many other things caused by marijuana. When someone dies, the doctor enters a code into their death certificate saying what they died from. There's no code for marijuana. Codes for lung cancer and psoriasis, but not marijuana. so again, nice try

You are only right about the tar, yes it's true SMOKING cannabis has much more tar than modern tobacco, but it can be reduced by using a bong, or get rid of it completely by using a vaporizer or consuming edibles, and by the way new research has shown that moderate smoking of cannabis does not affect the lungs and it increases lung capacity, but heavy smoking can cause lung problems just like with tobbaco.

Have you ever thought there's a reason that they're called drug stores? Medicine is a drug. They are just good drugs, but the field of medicine isn't perfect and there are some harmful drugs we give out as medicine and some good drugs we don't'. Your argument was spotty and ignorant at best.

Since you're so informed on matters such as this...

Name a single ailment that cannabis is intended to cure.

CURE. Not treat; cure.

Did my answer in any way address cannabis? There isn't enough research out there to prove exactly what it does. Please, pay better attention to what I'm saying. What I was stating was you can't dismiss that is has benefits just because it is a drug, almost any medicine is a drug. What people should do is research it to find out instead of just dismissing it.
#19 to #18 - aBlindMoron (08/04/2012) [-]
There isn't also any research saying cannabis isn't harmful. Personally I don't believe it is, and I'm pro-legalization. But that's because the US would save money by not enforcing drug laws, and it would lower the incarceration rate- which would save more money.   
   
When assholes come along and act like marijuana is some mystical cure-all agent that will save the US economy, solve world hunger, and treat every disease I get rustled. Just trying to make sure you weren't one of those assholes.

No, I don't like those people either. But I also hate the people who are against it by using arguments like "Weed is a drug and medicine is not so weed can't be medicine." Which I just wanted to make sure analcarnage was not. Thank you for explaining your viewpoint.

medical pot isn't exactly used to treat illness. it's used for two things:
a painkiller, since the death of brain cells inhibits neural transmissions, the pain never reaches your brain and is not felt
to treat the appetite loss that is a side effect of many drugs that actually cure things. many people can survive illnesses due to modern medicine, but will become weak because they are unable to eat. pot gives you the munchies, and fixes this.

tl;dr pot is not actual medicine
User avatar #39 to #31 - sketchysketchist ONLINE (08/05/2012) [-]
Pot only functions as a pain relieve and appetite (anti-suppressant?) so technically, it is a medicine.
However, doesn't cure anything.

it does help with glaucoma

i dont know **** , but my mother has a medical degree and i having a chat, and she was tell me that pot reduces and sometime reverses the effects of glaucoma. thats why people get licences for night blindness.
User avatar #62 to #60 - sketchysketchist ONLINE (08/05/2012) [-]
Oh, must have to do with eyes dialating from smoking weed and undoing glaucoma's thing.
I'm assuming though, because I don't know jack **** about marijuana or glaucoma.

User avatar #43 to #31 - dcmp (08/05/2012) [-]
you know that weed doesnt kill brain cells right? and you know that pain isnt relieved by brain cell death right? pain is relieved via the release of serotonin, or the blocking of neurotransmitter receptor sited on brain cells, usually the synapse.

Weed is grows whether or not people add chemicals to it. I'm talking about the natural plant itself.
Poison Ivy is unsafe to smoke, but Im not talking about that. Im saying weed is a plant by definition. And, just because one type of plant is unsafe to smoke, does that make EVERY plant unsafe to smoke or consume?
Just because I quote someone you find annoying does not make any argument I make invalid.

I'm not a stoner, I just find this quote funny, but then people start bitching.

It used to be just a plant, back when they mostly grew it for hemp. Now its like super concentrated and isn't very natural at all.

Of course pot works as medicine!
I know because I'm a 20 year old college drop-out who completed half of my philosophy major!
Don't trust those evil doctors with 12+ years of high level education and those scientists who spend lifetimes researching cures!

true, because money can´t corrupt the pharmacies and falsing their researches...
#63 to #56 - anon (08/05/2012) [-]
And wanting getting high to be legal couldn't corrupt their resea--oh wait, they don't have any legitimate double blind studies.

Marijuana cures nothing, and isn't even very good compared to normal painkillers.

If they want to get high they can? It isn't hard to get weed you ignorant twat.

im not against weed, im sayin tobacco is worse and that is legal. i dont understand it

To process a great amount of tobacco you need a factory and lots of workers.
To process a great amount of weed you need one ******* guy and a pair of scissors.

You can't put a tax on a weed. It grows everywhere without much help, it produces a buzz way faster than tobacco, basically you can smoke twelve cigarettes and not feel it. I dare you to smoke twelve joints and not feel a thing. It's not taxable. Therefore it's not profitable for the people who decide what's legal and what's not. Therefore it's illegal.
User avatar #66 to #64 - CaptinAwesome (08/05/2012) [-]
you can get a company that does nothing but sell weed. hell, get a **** ton of companys that sell it. they can all come together and make a common price, forcing street dealers out of business or lowering their price. and then you can tax it. since not much manpower is needed to make it, it shouldnt be very expensive. so taxing shouldnt be a problem?
User avatar #69 to #66 - artillerysmith (08/06/2012) [-]
The reason that won't work is because it's so easy to grow and process. Growing tobacco is hard work. You ever spend all day with a hatchet cutting, staking, and hanging tobacco? Even if you spend all day working, you only gather about enough for ten people to smoke for a month.

Weed on the other hand, grows anywhere and is super easy to process. The product is several orders of magnitude more potent, so you don't need to grow as much to satisfy the same number of people. You can harvest enough weed for ten people to smoke happily for a month in a couple of hours. The supply and demand scale would be incredibly unbalanced. You can't have a stable market on a product that costs several cents for a week's supply.

Weed has a lot of positives. Way more than negatives. If the government could tax it properly then we could have a perfect medication.

User avatar #65 to #50 - artillerysmith (08/05/2012) [-]
Not even close to near perfect. It's been proven to be a pain reliever, but there still hasn't been a good study showing it positively improving any condition. If you have a study proving me wrong, then post a link to the journal it's published in. I'm open to the possibility that I could be wrong.

This is interesting, but it's a study using mice as test subjects. Also the group doing their research have yet to publish their findings, so the study isn't even complete yet. The original article is a study note, not the entire study. When the entire thing comes out I'll be incredibly interested in it. My Grandmother had Alzheimer and ultimately died from it, so if caniboids can halt or reverse the process I'm all ears. Any idea where this is going to be published?
User avatar #71 to #70 - cactusupthebutt (08/06/2012) [-]
Not really. I'm keeping an eye out as well. My mom is having problems with memory. She used to smoke weed when she was younger and it helped her in a lot of ways. But if this IS true. I'd like to have it for her and for me if my memory starts to fail.

User avatar #67 to #61 - flexib (08/05/2012) [-]
most people whit use it for medicinal properties tend to vaporize it.
#73 to #61 - anon (08/06/2012) [-]
Addiction refers to behavior. Weed itself isn't addictive but the act of smoking, ingesting, or vaporizing it can be. Many cigarette smokers are simply addicted to the act of smoking.
